Take an inventory

Have you ever taken a full inventory of your church property?

Take a full inventory. Then give yourself permission to:

  • Chuck things out (I know of more than one minister who has to find sneaky ways of throwing things out so parishoners don't find out!)
  • Buy new things that'll look nice
  • Buy new things that'll make things go smoother
  • Store everything neatly so you can actually find them when you need them
  • Pass things on to those who would use them better
  • What else?
